Jabberü, which offers language classes for children 1 to 10, opened a new location in the Kentlands, 316 Main St. Jabberü has been teaching at their downtown Bethesda location since January.

Jabberü offers classes in Spanish, French, Chinese, Arabic and Italian for kids through a program its founders created which is taught by native-speaking instructors, according to a press release.

In its learning centers called JabberLabs, the students learn by playing games, through role play, music and arts and crafts projects.
